I think it was about time. Time to write my own mobile testing mnemonic. I am working in the field of mobile testing almost 9 years and during this time, I tested many different apps with different use cases. I learnt a lot during this time and I shared my learnings with the world in my own book about mobile testing. Reading books is awesome, but the content from more than 300 pages is hard to keep in mind and to remember. Therefore, I thought it is time to create a mnemonic with the name “Mobile App Testing”.

In the beginning I thought it will be hard to find for the right content for each letter. But in the end it was fairly easy. My mnemonic is covering areas like mobile devices, orientation, mobile browsers, interrupts, performance, automation and many many more.

Please take your time and read the complete mnemonic in the Ministry of Testing dojo here.

Today I have something for my german readers. Together with Ron Werner, Team Lead Mobile Testing from qualityminds, I recorded a mobile testing podcast. The first episode is live and is covering the start into mobile testing (“Wie starte ich als Einsteiger im Mobile Testing durch?”). For beginners it is sometimes not easy to find the right sources and we thought we can share our sources in the first episode.

After recording the first episode, we agreed to record more, so stay tuned for more podcasts about mobile testing and again sorry, by now only in german.

You can find the podcast on iTunes as well as on podcast.de.

If you have feedback, let us know :).

Reading Recommendations - 2 Years in Testing: Then and Now 2 Years in Testing: Then and Now | Cassandra HL Last year, I wrote about my experiences after one year in testing. I’ve decided to try and make it a bit of a tradition, so I can give people a bit of insight into my experiences and how things are changing, but mostly for myself so I can look back on my own challenges and development as I gain more experience as a professional tester.
